If you have an email list, you want to grow that list. The best way to do this is by offering "lead magnets".

This freebie, a lead magnet, is a way to get website traffic to land on a page and download something they want. This could be an eBook, checklist, to do list, a guide, a cheatsheet, a swipe file, a white paper or any type of downloadable PDF.  When they download the lead magnet, they give you their email address and therefore become a lead.

Give Google What Google Wants (SEO tips for content marketing)

Aug 27, 2019

As marketers and business owners, we are constantly trying to get eyes on our content. It's a struggle! But totally doable. Check out my content marketing training for more info.

But what I want to talk to you about today is to get Google's eyes on your content!

Organic search is a steadfast channel to get eyes on all your wonderful content (both Google's eyes and the eyes of your target audience).

Do what Google wants

Google wants to deliver the right content to the right searcher. So if your content shows up in a google search and the visitor clicks on it, goes to your site and immediately leaves, Google knows this and will not be happy with you. What happens?  Your website drops in ranking....

  • Authority
  • Trustworthiness

How to establish expertise

Create a very thorough section about your targeted topic on your site. For example, if you provide content marketing for your clients, then have a page or an entire...

Important Facebook Advertising Metrics You Need to Keep in Mind (& benchmark metrics)

Aug 18, 2019

We know that click-throughs, clicks, and pay-per-click are super important Facebook ads metrics we need to pay attention to. But there are others that you should also keep an eye on:

Frequency:

This metric shows you how frequent an ad is served up to your audience (the average number of times a person saw your ad). If this number becomes too high, people won't click and your ad cost will go up. You want to keep this number under 4. If you are at 4 or over, it's time to change out your ad.

Quality Ranking:

How your Ad's quality compares to ads from your competitors. 

Engagement Rate Ranking:

How your Ad's engagement rate compares to ads from your competitors. 

Impressions:

The number of times your ad has shown.

BENCHMARKS METRICS FOR FACEBOOK ADS:

Here are some benchmarks you can look at. But remember, every industry and every niche is different. So these benchmarks are the average for most industries. Try to find the benchmarks for your industry as well.

Tool suggestion: Video Transcription Service

Aug 11, 2019

It's always good to have subtitles on your videos when you post them online. A lot of people scroll through with the sound OFF and they read the subtitles instead. 

If you do a lot of video work, I recommend paying for a transcription service. I like to use Rev. Here's the link:
